The Browns made it official Friday with a 117-word press release, or one per headache Johnny Manziel caused them.
The team announced they had waived Manziel, which everyone knew was coming from the time they washed their hands of him the week of the Super Bowl.
The release was straightforward, with no quotes from anyone involved with the team, mentioning only his stats, and those left behind on the quarterback depth chart.
At the moment, that includes Josh McCown, Austin Davis and Connor Shaw, though more are doubtless coming soon.
They did not specify in the release whether they retained the rights to the homeless guy who advised owner Jimmy Haslam to use a first-round pick on Manziel two years ago.
